Interactive Session on Anatomy for St Francis Methodist School Students

Posted: 1 October 2014

A group of 13 students from St Francis Methodist School visited the Faculty of Health Sciences on Thursday, 4th September 2014.

The Health Sciences visit began with an interactive human anatomy laboratory session at the School of Biomedical Sciences. During the session, the students learned how lungs are inflated through pumping air into a set of pig’s lungs. Students get to virtually dissect the human body on our Anatomage Table to visualise and identify the organs and structures seen in various cross sections of the body. Students also completed an exercise where they had to identify the location of each organ in our body.

After the anatomy interactive laboratory session, the School of Pharmacy gave the students a tour of their dispensary suite and super lab facilities.

Overall, the students reported that they thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the Faculty and some students even reported that it piqued their interest to study at Curtin. Health Sciences International would like to thank all School of Biomedical Sciences and School of Pharmacy staff for their time and effort in hosting this student visit.
